Stayed here for 3 nights while we explored Innsbruck and neighboring areas. Key thing to remember: no AC. Because of the summertime warmth/humidity, we needed to open the windows (no screens, so welcome bugs) and unfortunately had cigarette smoke and lots of road traffic noise (the hotel sits on the main road in Zirl so LOTS of trucks in the early morning). Lots of free, convenient parking (since there is a restaurant and cafe in the hotel also). The rooms are all dark wood panelled, so nice to look at and the view from the streetside rooms is a very nice one of the mountains. The room we had was on the 3rd floor (limited number of rooms up there) which required a lift to the second floor up and then a walk up a flight of stairs. The bathroom was VERY small (I could brush my teeth while using the toilet) and the shower was also tight (good thing we're not tall people, else we couldn't stand in the shower). As it was, it was hard to bend down to wash our feet! Water pressure was a little disappointing, barely enough to wash my hair well. There was bulk soap/shampoo in a container offered, which was okay. The bed was european firm, the pillows were feather pillows and too soft. We struggled with the heat, and noise, and getting comfortable. On the other hand breakfast each morning was good (couple of choices of meat, hard boiled eggs, nice selection of cheeses and pastries, fruit cocktail and whole fruit, yogurt, cereals) whereas dinner was excellent (with accompanying service as well). We walked around the small town, not much to see in Zirl, but its within a minute or so of the highway to Garmisch or Innsbruck so very convenient, or about 50 ft from a bus stop that will take you to into Innsbruck. We calculated the cost of the tickets and compared it with the cost of parking and it was actually cheaper to just go and park in Innsbruck for a few hours than it was for us to all catch the bus.
While I enjoyed the food and the convenient location, its unlikely I'd stay here again during the summer, but would consider it for a fall or winter trip.
